Christmas Math and ELA Crafts

This Christmas, make it easy on yourself by incorporating easy-to-prep, FUN craftivities to reinforce key Math and ELA skills in the classroom. These crafts correspond with 1st and 2nd grade common core standards, making them easy to tie in as extension activities throughout the month. Students enjoy cutting, pasting and matching to create unique projects that can be easily differentiated to meet the needs of all learners in your classroom. Craftivities are visually appealing, and make instant eye-catching bulletin board displays. Check out some more below, and score a FREEBIE of one of our favorites while you’re here!
